Former Navy Commander Retired Admiral Wasantha Karannagoda appeared before the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) today to make a statement related to the case on the abduction of 11 youth.
Karannagoda was ordered by court to appear before the CID. However the Supreme Court issued an order preventing the CID from arresting him.
He was questioned for over 8 hours by the CID today.
Earlier, Karannagoda had filed a Fundamental Rights petition in court against moves to arrest him.
The Supreme Court then issued an order preventing his arrest but ordering that he appear before the CID to record a statement.
The 11 youth had been abducted in Colombo and the suburbs between 2008 and 2009. (Colombo Gazette)
